What Do My CT Scan Test Results Indicate?
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns
I am sorry to hear that you are having abdominal pain with nausea. Your CT scan did show swollen appendix with stones. This is consistent with a chronic appendicitis. This will in all likelihood eventually need surgery. If you are still having pain and nausea I would suggest returning to your surgeon and see if they can't proceed with an appendectomy. This type of appendicitis can go on for weeks to months.
If you develop fever with the abdominal pain then you need to be seen ASAP as you could have full acute appendicitis and need emergency surgery.
I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
Fever > 101
When you fever gets above 101 then that is when you need to be seen. I have hd other patients with the chronic appendicitis and they all end up having appendectomy anyway. So I would keep telling your doctor surgeon how you are feeling and have it removed.
